K I'm new as well and need some clarification on a few things if possible. I have a droid x and wanted to use Root Explorer to change the Unlock.ogg. to something other than the little sound. I have converted an MP3 file to .ogg and got it to sound great and it is currently named Unlock.ogg and is on my sdcard.
While trying to rename the original Unlock.ogg in SYSTEM/MEDIA/AUDIO/UI it tells me that the file is read only. I go back to reading forums . . .
. . . I come back under the impression that I now need to root my phone to continue. I see a file in Root Explorer called root and it says that my phone doesn't seem to be rooted. I learn about a program called DroidXRoot that has two buttons one to root one to unroot. After a little struggle I finally get the program to tell me that my phone has been successfully rooted.
I reboot and open Root Explorer only to get told the same thing -- the Unlock.ogg file in the UI is still saying read only and when I clicked on the root file it said that my phone doesn't appear to be rooted.
Taking a step back, I remember reading about an app called Superuser that I'm supposed to have, I check my apps and no Superuser so I check the market and find a free one.
I should note here that my antivirus flagged the Superuser I downloaded, I picked the one with the most good reviews so I tend to think its no big deal, but still. When I open Superuser it tells me I need to update the su binary and to click OK to automatically update. The update falis and tells me su-2.3.1-bin-signed.zip has been placed on my sdcard please reboot into recovery mode and flash it to update my su binary. I don't know how to do that.
This is where I'm at right now wondering if I'm close to the end result and if I'm missing something so far that might make this all make more sense. I also don't know if I'm on the righht track or if I should unroot through the program I rooted through and start over or what. Help Please. I don't know if the previous guides are even for my phone. I have read most of them and am still unsure what if anything I'm leaving out or 100 percent on what I should do next. Anyone have any Ideas?
